Jack's First Birthday Party

We were on a family vacation at the beach the actual day of Jack's first birthday, so we had his party the Sunday before we left.  That way, Bech's family could celebrate with us.  It was just family, and we had a great time.

I wanted to do a sweet blue and white themed party.  Every summer for the past few years, Bech and I have gone to my Uncle RJ's to pick blueberries with my Nana and Papa.  We went the week before his party and got TONS of blueberries, so we ended up using those with the food.

The birthday boy's seat.

I made this birthday banner with scrapbook paper.  We will reuse this for many birthday's to come!

This fabric banner was on sale at Michael's.  I used stick on letters so that I can remove them (because I don't think I can call him "Baby Jack" for much longer!).

The food table.

Blueberry chicken salad (gotta love pinterest!)

The chicken salad and hummus with crackers and bread.

Lots of fresh blueberries to snack on!

The tarts are filled with strawberry fruit dip and fresh blueberries.

Jack's smash cake (from Cakes and Candles).


Mason jars with blue ribbon and blue striped straws.

Bech made some really good blueberry lemonade for everyone!

Jack had a great day, and we had fun celebrating with our families.
